Tension is mounting in the Assin Dansame township in Ghana, following an order by the chief of the town for a corpse to be exhumed.
The chief, Nana Twum Barima V is said to have ordered for the body of the deceased, Kofi Emmanuel to be exhumed from the cemetery on Monday 26th June , a day after his burial , on the grounds that the deceased flouted community’s rule by abstaining from communal labour when he was alive.
The chief argues that since the deceased failed to respect the laws of the land, then he does not deserve to be buried on the same soil but elsewhere hence the exhumation.
The corpse has since been dumped at the town’s lorry station after it was initially left along a footpath in the town. Fluid from the corpse leaks unto the ground with many fearing of a possible disease outbreak as a result of that unhealthy discharge.
